Wandering among the buildings and villas in the province of Viterbo, the authors have recreated the lives of some of the women who lived in those dwellings and left their own – often secret –stamp on them.
The entire region and its mythology are inhabited by female characters at times great, sweet, poignant, harsh and even tragic: from the vilified Giulia “la Bella”, Pope Alexander VI’s mistress, to the tragic Maria Hardouin d'Annunzio, Duchess of Gallese.
